GLASGOW, U.K. -- Leading financial services company selects THUS to provide bespoke Next-generation network 12th June, 2006 - THUS plc today announced that it has won a contract valued at £1.3 million with Brewin Dolphin Securities, the UK's largest independent private client portfolio manager, to provide a converged next generation wide area network (WAN). THUS will be an additional key provider linking over 35 Brewin Dolphin offices and adding resilience for future applications such as Voice over IP (VOIP) currently being implemented.

As a UK financial services provider, Brewin Dolphin is heavily reliant on the transfer of data in its day-to-day business. Significant volumes of data need to be moved between offices to ensure that Brewin Dolphin is able to stay ahead of its peers in a highly competitive field. THUS's experience of deploying mission-critical networks to the financial sector, made it an obvious choice for Brewin Dolphin, which selected the company following a competitive tender.

Raymond Logan, Head of IS Infrastructure for Brewin Dolphin comments, "We chose to work with THUS because of their ability to provide low latency, high speed resilient networks. We were impressed by their existing services to other clients and the innovations which were demonstrated to us. The ability to have THUS provide direct connectivity from their points of presence (POP's) in the UK meant that we did not have to rely on more than one provider for tail circuits. This helps to reduce points of failure at the major Brewin Dolphin Offices and increases the robustness that our organisation requires for mission critical applications and future VOIP technologies."
